Flames vs Ducks: Round 2 Playoff Quotables
A round-up of some of the best quotes from Round 2 of the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Flames usage throughout the playoffs
How were they used? Who wasn't used enough? What more could have been done? It was a hell of a ride, regardless.

You know, just Johnny Hockey doing Johnny Hockey things.
Jiri Hudler opens the scoring

The last time the Flames were in Anaheim, they got shutout. And the time before that, they gave up six goals before they scored one themselves. NOT TODAY. Jiri Hudler has finally woken up!
No individuals to blame
It's a team sport. There are always heroes and goats, but no matter what, it's always win as a team, lose as a team. The Flames have showed us that all season.
Breaking The Habit - Flames @ Ducks Game 5 Preview
Is this the Flames' last hurrah for the 14/15 season, or can they finally snap the nine-year losing streak in Anaheim?

Ducks vs Flames Game 4 recap: Flames extinguished
After late heroics in game three, the Flames looked to tie up the series. Some very unfortunate decisions and goals eventually resulted in the Flames trailing Anaheim 3-1 as the series will shift back to California.
WATCH: And then, right after - Micheal Ferland takes the lead

That's Micheal Ferland, in his return after just one period against the Ducks, already being incredibly relevant.
WATCH: Johnny Hockey's ridiculous dangling to set up Sean Monahan
in my defense: look at this. he made it happen, and also, i was distracted when they scored again as i was typing pic.twitter.com/3sjo1py5tW— Stephanie Vail (@myregularface) May 9, 2015
It was actually a Monahan goal, and possibly one of the easiest of his life thanks to... whatever it was Johnny Gaudreau did there. Pure. Majesty.
Lance Bouma, Micheal Ferland possibilities for Game 4
Ferland, Bouma both on the ice for warmup. Hartley called both 'game-time decisions' this morning. #Flames— Aaron Vickers (@AAVickers) May 9, 2015
Bouma is probably in. Ferland, we're less sure of. But hey, there's a chance...
Second round tickets most expensive in Calgary
The Flames may not be favourites to win the series, but that's not gonna stop Calgary from spending some serious $$$ to watch 'em anyway.
Flames Vs Ducks Game 4 Preview
The Flames have taken something from nothing all season - surely not again?
M&G take on the Honda Center
In an effort to break the curse, we flew from Alberta to Phoenix and drove to Anaheim. That's dedication. And money saving.
Bouma to return?
The Flames were using a kid with a penchant for physicality before he unfortunately got hurt. After a month, their other kid with a penchant for physicality may be ready to return.
Mic'd Up: Flames bench reacts to Johnny Gaudreau's game-tying goal
Boy, that's a loud bench. And a LOUD building. I think my favourite part is probably Mikael Backlund jumping around to hug everybody, but Josh Jooris' clear untethered enthusiasm is up there, too.
Game 3 Stats Recap: Late Game Heroics Fuel Flames
With the goalie pulled, Johnny Hockey scored with 20 seconds remaining to tie the game. With the goalie pulled, Mikael Backlund scored the overtime winner. The Calgary Flames are crazy and it's awesome.
Flames vs Ducks Game 3 recap: Right Backs in it
In the most dramatic game yet, the Flames staved off the on-ice orange crush, with a longtime unsung hero's first career playoff goal cementing the victory.
Brandon Bollig has more playoff goals than...
We all were wrong when the Flames traded for Brandon Bollig last summer. Now he has two goals in the playoffs.
Pros + Cons of burning year one of Bennett's ELC
Does it make sense to bring a good player to his next contract that much faster if his season isn't going to last that much longer?
This Means War - Flames vs Ducks Game 3 Preview
Okay, so the road games haven't gone to plan. Can the Flames turn the series around in the Saddledome?

Bob Hartley's line shuffling failed to produce any offense as the Calgary Flames fell 3-0 to the Anaheim Ducks. The series heads back to Calgary where the Flames will try to dig themselves out of a 2-0 series deficit.
Rip It Up And Start Again - Game 2 Preview
Can we just pretend that game one didn't happen? Please? No? Damn.
Ramo starting, Ferland probably okay, and more

Round 2 Game 1 Stats Recap: Ducks Dismantle Flames
The Calgary Flames lost 6-1 to the Anaheim Ducks in a miserable performance that also saw two key Flames' forwards leave the game with injuries.
Flames/Ducks Game 1 recap: Ouch
Welcome to the playoffs, kids. You're still growing and developing. This one was bad. It'll be okay.
Brandon Bollig: Stanley Cup Champion, Actor...?
The moment we've all been waiting for. Maybe Brandon Bollig should have pursued his acting dreams?
Nate Thompson with a cheap cross check on Johnny Gaudreau

Seriously, the Ducks have a lead, and they're already cheapshotting? That's nice. Gaudreau was fine and got right back up, as he is wont to do every time someone tries to hurt him. Maybe people should stop; it clearly doesn't do any good.
